Can’t afford an acupressurist who makes house calls? The New York College of Health Professions is developing a range of clothing that targets key pressure points in the body for pain relief and performance enhancement. Designed with both athletes and non-athletes in mind, the proposed “MyChi” collection will include uniforms, sweatbands, and other sports gear equipped with “acupressure buttons” to stimulate blood circulation and the immune response. Similar to acupuncture, acupressure is a centuries-old practice that falls under the classification of traditional Chinese medicine. Unlike the former, which requires needles, acupressure uses the hands, fingers, elbows, or feet to restore the flow of energy (otherwise known as “qi” or “chi”) and activate the body’s ability to heal itself.
